Transcripts

Martin:

Welcome to Presentation Skills Q and A. I am Martin Lindesgoog.

Martin:

Hi Karina.

Carina:

Hi Martin, how are you today?

Martin:

I'm doing okay.

Martin:

Yourself?

Carina:

Yeah. Well, I'm doing okay as well.

Carina:

Interesting to talking to you again.

Carina:

Yes, we have been talking around our podcast show notes and transcripts and how you as a

Carina:

podcaster meet your audience.

Carina:

But today we're going to do the other way.

Carina:

How should the audience meet the podcaster.

Martin:

Here and that now with new podcast apps like Fountain and podverse and others you

Martin:

could be more almost like a co creator and you could cook producer with the podcast.

Martin:

So you insert or you come with feedback in real time when you're listening for example at

Martin:

live identity tag as if we call it or a quick response after episode is published and then

Martin:

you could send a digital telegram with a note of appreciation like a token like it calls

Martin:

satushi's.

Martin:

That's something that's coming that you could

Martin:

get this interaction.

Carina:

Yes, just the interaction that's so important because I can relate to my former

Carina:

occupation when I was a singer.

Carina:

You can go out to the audience and ask them to

Carina:

give you applause but you always get something back from the audience.

Carina:

Sometimes you got flowers and sometimes you got to waiters but you got in a reaction

Carina:

anyway.

Carina:

So how should you do it when you have a

Carina:

podcast?

Martin:

Yeah, that's the so called tricky questions is to ask.

Martin:

Dare to ask and think about ask and then also receive and confirm that you have got feedback

Martin:

and then rinse and repeat and then do it again, ask again.

Martin:

So dare to ask what you want to have support help with.

Martin:

For example, it's this expression time, talent and treasure.

Martin:

So for example, when the time of course the listener, the audience taking their time to

Martin:

listen they could also take a little time to spread the good word.

Martin:

Give a tip, a suggestion to potentially new listener and then to the talent.

Martin:

If you need help in the production or in the workflow or the marketing of a podcast could

Martin:

be one thing and then treasure.

Martin:

So monetary feedback like a financial

Martin:

transaction.

Martin:

And with this new podcast initiative

Martin:

Podcasting 2.0 you could send small amounts micro payments through something called

Martin:

Lightning Network and then it satushes a bit of bitcoin.

Martin:

So there you have it.

Martin:

But then of course you could get feedback via

Martin:

PayPal, via coffee in my case buy me tea to joke many ways of doing it.

Carina:

I heard that the ask is one of the most important things and I've read somewhere

Carina:

that the reason why people do not give anything, they just listen and they don't give

Carina:

anything back is because they haven't been asked.

Carina:

Is it so?

Martin:

Yeah, that's the case often and some organizations non for profit and others they

Martin:

are very good at that.

Carina:

So you shouldn't be afraid of asking.

Martin:

So maybe we should do that also then?

Carina:

Yes, we should.

Carina:

So we do an example.

Martin:

Go ahead.

Martin:

We ask you, the listeners, to take some time

Martin:

and download a new podcast app, for example, Fountain and podverse.

Martin:

And then you could give us a positive feedback loop with a note digital telegram.

Martin:

So that's one example of an ask.

Carina:

Thank you. Martin. Well, I think we should give our Pod a plow because now we have

Carina:

making this Pod together for at least four years now.

Carina:

We are still going on.

Martin:

Yeah, we are.

Martin:

And we're looking forward to your feedback.

Martin:

Thanks.

Carina:

Listener yes, we do.

Carina:

Thank you so much.

Carina:

Well, nice to talk to you about this topic, Martin.

Carina:

We will continue with this.

Martin:

Yeah, we're looking forward to this and get your feedback, as we said.

Martin:

And talk to you soon again.

Martin:

Karina yes.
